TAC Cup Legend: Charger Alan Johnson
Alan Johnson is the final TAC Cup Legend to be announced for season 2016.
At the Oakleigh Chargers Towards Zero Player Night and Presentation evening, Johnson was recognised for over 20 years of service to the club by former Charger now Melbourne player Jack Viney.
Viney returned to his TAC Cup club to present Johnson with his award as part of the 25 years of TAC Cup celebrations in 2016.
Each TAC Cup club has recognised their local legends for their contribution to the long running success of the competition.
86 year old Johnson has been involved with the TAC Cup competition since its inception in 1992, beginning with the Sandringham Dragons before being drafted to Oakleigh. He manages the facility at the Chargers and keeps an eye on arranging things and the meeting rooms.
Throughout the 2016 season, each club has revealed their local legend and highlighted the important role they play within the club.
This season the competition has embarked on a new chapter in not only footy, but in road safety as well, with Towards Zero the key road safety message.
AFL Victoria and TAC are asking every club, every community to STAND TOGETHER, to look out for each other and to all share the responsibility of road safety and keep our community safe.
Road trauma is not about numbers. It is about people’s brothers, sisters, mothers, fathers, sons and daughters and not one of them deserves to be killed or seriously injured just because they use our roads.
Well done to all the TAC Cup Legends in 2016, and thanks for the role you play in developing players in the talent pathway.
